Rummage is one of the many projects of Scottish musician Mark Mulholland, in which he teamed up with a couple of friends and long-time musical collaborators, James Finch Jr. And Rusty Miller, to record a dozen of his songs at a studio near San Francisco in 2014. The resulting 12 songs range from raw rock’n’roll, catchy pop-rock, laid-back blues and grooves, up-tempo country to wistful folk and late night melancholy, with both Rusty and James turning their hands to drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, vocals and percussion as required by the song.
Born in Glasgow, Mark Mulholland started playing in bands in Edinburgh in the late ’80s, then for two decades lived and played in various European cities including Berlin, Paris, Prague and Galway, while touring extensively throughout Europe and North America, always combining his solo career with various bands and projects such as acoustic folk/blues/country outfit Two Dollar Bash, indie rock band Impure Thoughts and folk/punk collective The Oul’ Bogwarriors, as well as session work with Nikki Sudden, Captain Sensible, Phil Shoenfelt and many other artists, and collaborative projects with afro-beat legend Tony Allen, Haitian poet Frankétienne and others. In 2010, he moved to Haiti, where he spent 4 years, before relocating to Bamako, Mali, in September 2014, where he is working on several new projects with many of the fantastic musicians there, including the internationally acclaimed kora maestros Toumani Diabate and Madou Sidiki Diabate, and n’goni and percussion player Yacouba Sissoko.
